    There have always been a number of ways to copy and paste text. Using a Control+Click to access a context menu, enabling Right Click in the Mouse System Preference pane to enable access to the context menu, or by using the keyboard shortcuts Command+C (copy), Command+X (cut), and Command+V (paste).

  • Yes, you can. Simply make a selection by clicking and dragging over text, then right click on the selection. A contextual menu will appear which will contain the option to copy your selection. Click on "copy" to copy your selection. Now place your cursor where you would like to paste your selection. Right click again to bring up the contextual menu and click on "paste". You have now copied and pasted without using the Edit menu.

  • Yes: Since this mouse has a secondary click function (i.e. "right-click"), it will have the same access to contextual copy/cut/paste functions (via pop-up menu) as common multi-button mice (such as the Mighty Mouse and most third-party devices).

  • This is built into os x.

    It has left/right click functions so yes it will have the copy/paste menu under the "right click" function.

    If that is what you mean.
